The Best Morgan Freeman Movies to Watch for a Successful Weekend

Morgan Freeman is a living legend who needs no other presentations, as he played in over 90 movies. Freeman is one of the most respected actors, and he’s known for his authoritative voice. Morgan Freeman is the recipient of various accolades and included are a Golden Globe Award, an Academy Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award.

Morgan Freeman has numerous successful movies, but here we’re presenting you only a small part of them:

The Bucket List (2007)

Two cancer patients meet at the hospital and slowly become friends: Carter (Morgan Freeman) and Edward (Jack Nicholson). Not having too much time left in this life, they both make a list of things to do before they die: skydiving, racing, and even sexual affairs. While Edward is a corporate billionaire, Carter is only a working-class mechanic but a very smart one. They don’t have too much in common, but they’re willing to get involved in the adventure of their lives.

Bruce Almighty (2003)

If you put two titan actors such as Jim Carrey and Morgan Freeman in the same cast, you can only obtain a great recipe for success. Bruce Almighty is the right comedy for reflecting on life and God, but also for having a good laugh. The movie tells the story of Bruce Nolan (Jim Carrey), a regular guy who has many failures in his life and often blames God for it. But one day, God Himself (played by Morgan Freeman) proposes Nolan a deal: to give His absolute powers for a limited time just so that the guy will see how difficult it is to be the supreme being in the Universe. 

Se7en (1995)

The seven deadly sins from Christianity are not something to be messing with, and the serial killer from this movie wants to get rid of those who commit them. Those sins are pride, lust, wrath, sloth, gluttony, greed, and envy. The killer doesn’t seem to spare those who often commit them, and two detectives known as Somerset (Morgan Freeman) and Mills (Brad Pitt) are doing their best to track down the assassin.

Part of the IMDb’s description says:

The movie takes us from the tortured remains of one victim to the next as the sociopathic “John Doe” (Kevin Spacey) sermonizes to Detectives Somerset and Mills — one sin at a time. The sin of Gluttony comes first and the murderer’s terrible capacity is graphically demonstrated in the dark and subdued tones characteristic of film noir. The seasoned and cultured but jaded Somerset researches the Seven Deadly Sins in an effort to understand the killer’s modus operandi while the bright but green and impulsive Detective Mills (Pitt) scoffs at his efforts to get inside the mind of a killer

Se7en was nominated for 1 Oscar, and it received another 29 wins and 41 nominations.

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

Easily one of the greatest movies in history, Shawshank Redemption tells the story of Andy (Tim Robbens), a man sentenced to prison for a crime he didn’t commit. He slowly tries to find a way to escape as he adapts to life from prison. He meets Red (Morgan Freeman), a handy guy who can get anything he needs except for his liberation from prison. The movie is an excellent representation of human behavior and hope in its most sublime aspect. Words are useless to describe how amazing Shawshank Redemption is, and the production was nominated for 7 Oscars and had another 21 wins and 36 nominations.

All of the movies have high rankings on IMDb and they’re excellent proof of Morgan Freeman’s huge talent. Feel free to tell us about your own favorite movies with the titanic actor!
